#DearZindagi A Letter to My Life..

“I am writing a letter to life for the #DearZindagi activity at BlogAdda“.

Hello Dear Zindagi,

With aim of writing a letter to you, I recalled few lines from a poem written by famous poet Gulzar :

Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai
Magar ismein jalne ka dastur hai...

Ravayat ye hai ke zindagi gehna hai
Ye heera hai aur, ise chaat-te rehna hai
Ke lamhon mein marne ka dastur hai..

Adhoore se rishton mein palte raho
Adhoore se saanson se chalte raho
Yuhin jeenay jaaney ka dastur hai..

Hai lau zindagi, zindagi noor hai..


How true is that!

My trek so far has been absolutely normal with few ups and downs. And I feel these crests and troughs give a person reasons to live and look forward to every coming morning.  Dear life, with this letter I want to convey my feelings and warmth about this journey over which I am going with you.



Dear life, you gave me most caring parents of this world, who never disappointed me and never failed me when I needed them.  I witnessed a beautiful childhood which was full of fun and enjoyment because of a younger sister and many cousins.

Dear life, you gave me the chance to prove myself as hard working kid who always tried to make her parents and teachers feel proud. Because of your desire, I could break rules of that conservative society who used to support caging girls inside the home. I came out, pursued my professional studies and now doing an ideal job.

Dear life, I can’t thank you more for giving me such a nice husband. You know well that early on our marriage, we faced many hardships and nearness challenges.  But 'we were in love' and soon we realized that those few gloomy and backstage moments eventually made us good performers on front site. My life, you have seen me crying and laughing at the same time. But the best part is, you never let me feel hopeless and that’s why I am living best years of married life now.

Dear life, what can be best than giving me a chance to become a mother. Motherhood has made me a complete woman, really. You gave me a jolly boy who unconditionally loves me. It actually feels so good when I see him growing day by day, showing his naughtiness and caring for me so much. The smallest man in my life is the biggest reason for my happiness you know.

Dear life, I have everything I ever desired for. You have given me everything a girl dreams for.  Now it is my chance to say "thank you" from the bottom of my heart for all this. Thanks a ton for making me happy and contended. I wish coming years that you are going to write for me shall also be full of stars and moons. I don’t fear difficult times but I request you to give me enough strength to deal with them. 

Thank you dear life for giving me fee will to love and to be loved, to make my own decisions, to learn from my mistakes, to laugh when I am happy and to cry when I am sad. Thank you once again for giving me all the vivacity of this world. There are ups and there are downs but still for me Zindagi Gulzar hai..

Love you my Zindagi :)

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

I would like to start this post with telling readers my profession. I am a software professional who has a decade of experience in technology and software development. In those 10 years, I have very closely seen how technology has evolved. Of course, the first urge was the necessity that let every invention happen. And then technology got advanced to make the user experience better and further sound. In the chain of making every sort of experience pleasanter for users, the era of smart devices came. We all remember the time when smartphones came into the market. Before that, we had those dial phones and keypad mobiles. We were able to talk to the other party. But the progression of technology made it real to actually see with whom we talk. We still talk through phones but with added feel and warmth.

The Utopian World Of Smart Devices

Not only smartphones, but there has been an exponential increase in the number of smart devices around us in the last 5 years. When I first heard the ter…

Food Habits That I Am Going To Change This Year

This post is for New Year resolutions blog train. The blog train is hosted by Vartika, Alpana and Prerna,  sponsored by Pandora's Box and Recipe Dabba. My topic is Dr Feelgood - How are you planning to tweak your Food Habits for 2019 .  

We all desire to stay healthy and happy. Yes, happiness is very much connected to our health. But today's sedentary lifestyle has made us fall for quick meals and unhealthy choices. Over the course of time, these quick things give us side effects that rather don't go quick. Eventually, we fall prey to weight loss industry which asks for cutting sugar, salt, oils, carbs, dairy product and almost everything which is there in our kitchens since our grandparents time. We run after different diets (Ketogenic diet, Vegan diet, Raw food diet etc) and we even believe in schemes like having dinner before sunset, getting rid of rice, keeping a distance with fruits and avoiding any type of fat.

Is this way of keeping ourselves fit sustainable in the …
